Manchester City defender Aymeric Laporte will travel to Saudi Arabia on Monday to complete a move to Al-Nassr.
The centre-back will fly to the Middle East ahead of his £23.5m transfer with the final details set to be signed off as Laporte becomes the Saudi Pro League’s latest European addition.
Laporte will call time on a five-year spell in Manchester where he helped guide Pep Guardiola’s side to five Premier League titles, two FA Cups, five League cups and the Champions League last season.
The 29-year-old departs England with two-years left on his existing deal at the Etihad and will join up with former Manchester United star Cristiano Ronaldo and Sadio Mane at Al-Nassr.
Laporte made 180 appearances for the reigning Premier League champions, scoring 12 goals during that time.
